Artist, writer and historian of stuff, Ashley Hackshaw, drew out these delightful sharpie owls on styrofoam pumpkins, presenting them as a “DIY” in 2014 on her blog site: LilBlueBoo.com.
I love how the eyes of these owls look like little delicate mandalas and the wings look like sections of mandalas. Even the smaller pumpkins take on my favorite circular shape.
About the design style, Ashley states:
I am a big fan of Mexican art…especially sugar skulls. I used black and silver Sharpie markers to turn these faux styrofoam pumpkins into owl sugar skulls for my Halloween decor this year.
How fun is this project! I love the idea of taking a blank “canvas” and making it your own. For me, I think I would doodle out one long line all over the pumpkin and then color in each of the sections created from any cross-overs.
What would you draw out on your pumpkin?
